Gibbons Earns a Place on Law360's List of New Jersey's Powerhouse Law Firms


July 2, 2014

Gibbons P.C. has been named one of Law360’s “New Jersey Powerhouse” law firms. According to Law360, Gibbons “sees founder Andrew Crummy’s legacy in its present status as a regional powerhouse at the center of trailblazing civil rights litigation, commercial development deals and public-private projects that involve billions of dollars.”

The Powerhouse Law Firms series profiles eleven firms in New Jersey that have “stood out for their sizeable presence in the state and significant accomplishments in regional work over the last two years.” The feature article on Gibbons emphasizes the firm’s almost 90 years of experience, with quotes from Patrick C. Dunican Jr., (Chairman and Managing Director of the firm), Frank T. Cannone (Chair of the Corporate Department), and Lawrence S. Lustberg, (Director of the John J. Gibbons Fellowship in Public Interest & Constitutional Law).

Mr. Dunican noted in the article, “Because of our location and proximity to New York and Philadelphia and because of our dense population, this is always going to be fertile ground for business development, and those people who are developing those businesses are going to be in need of really good lawyer talent.”

The firm’s selection as a “New Jersey Powerhouse” was based on its immersion in recent years in some of the most significant projects, transactions, and litigations in the state of New Jersey. Whether representing state or related governmental entities, or private sector clients whose business interests have significant regional ramifications, Gibbons has longstanding ties to matters that impact New Jersey’s most important industries – pharmaceutical, financial services, recreation and tourism, healthcare, and development, among others – and countless of its citizens. The firm handles many groundbreaking matters in New Jersey that often involve unique New Jersey legislation, pioneering transactions, major land developments, and complex, statewide litigations.
